Ruth Clemens' Spiced Apple Chutney Recipe

PUBLISHED: 12:50 11 December 2012 | UPDATED: 22:04 21 February 2013

The perfect winter recipe which you can enjoy yourself or can be given as a great homemade gift...

Making your own chutney is an enjoyable way to spend a cosy winter afternoon and its not as time consuming as it may seem at first.

Ruth shows you that making chutney is a quick and easy process of cooking chopped autumn fruit with flavourings and spices, sugar and vinegar. This will make a rich chutney that will see you through for months or you can give as a gift to someone special.


Chutneys are best left to mature for a couple of months before eating because the acids from the vinegar soften and the fruit flavours have time to meld and become more complex.

Home-made chutney is a great staple for the larder and is more useful than you might think. Chutneys can be enjoyed with sharp, mature cheddar and other hard cheeses.


Watch our video with Ruth who teaming up with Persil shows
us how to make a perfectly seasonal spiced apple chutney.
